This has nothing to do with discrete transforms. "Simple" example: \int_{-\inf}^{+\inf} \delta(x) f(x) dx = f(0)

where \delta(x) is the Dirac delta distribution and f(x) a smooth function (e.g.: exp(-itx)/sqrt(2\pi) ).

This uncertainty is also the cause why every laser has a finite spectral width: even a perfect sinoidal electromagnetic wave must have a length in the time regime which is finite - else the wave would hold an infinite amount of energy.

I'm just saying, pay attention to when you have to do it and you'll see some room for potential invention.

Why don't you start to pay attention yourself? The guy cooked up a solution that he can run on every device he owns, wondering how far he could take the principle of his solution. Then you advertise buying a separate hardware gadget as an improvement on that? WTH, man?

The point is, this mode uses Gnome-Shell. I can't use Gnome-Shell on my Netbook, because i use external monitors with it in extend desktop mode and the intel driver for my hardware doesn't support 3d acceleration with these "large" virtual resolutions. So making Gnome-Shell look like Gnome 2 doesn't help at all.

You don't tell me anything new. Birthday number x marks the end of year number x of your life. The same applies to years: new year 2000 marks the end of year 2000. If you begin counting at zero (like with birthdays), of course, as the ISO standard does. If you prefer the gregorian calender, then new year 2000 is actually the beginning of year number 2000. Because there's no year zero in this calendar.
